for self-defense and for hunting and for sportsman activities. target shooting. i still go target shooting basically out my backyard in searchlight with my grandchildren. but i've always had trouble understanding why people need assault weapons to hunt or protect their homes or to target shoot. when the assault weapons ban came before the senate for a vote ten years ago, i called my friends, one in particular, who is a real advocate with -- on guns. and he said to me, you can't define an assault weapon. why are you doing this? you can't define an assault weapon. he convinced me he was right, so i voted against that. i voted against the ban. just about a month ago i called this same friend. i asked if his opinion had changed. generally no, but specifically yes, it had changed. he still opposes a ban on assault weapons. i said tell me why. i found his new reasoning absurd. and even though i care a great deal about my friend, he's headed in the wrong direction. so it caused me to reassess my position. he said do police have assault weapons? i said, yeah, some of them. he said if they have the
general, the director of national intelligence and the secretary of defense shall jointly establish and periodically review policies and procedures governing the receipt, retention, use and disclosure of nonpublicly available cyberthreat information shared with the federal government in accordance with section 1104b of the national security act of 1947 as added by section 3a of this act. such policies and procedures shall, consistent with the need to protect systems and networks from cyberthreats and mitigate cyberthreats in a timely manner, one, minimize the impact on privacy and civil liberties, two, reasonably limit the receipt, retention, use and disclosure of cyberthreat information associated with specific persons that is not necessary to protect systems or networks from cyberthreats or mitigate cyberthreats in a timely manner. three, include requirements to safeguard nonpublicly available cyberthreat information that may be used to identify specific persons from unauthorized access or acquisition. four, protect the confidentiality of cyberthreat information associated with sp
, is it going to take a smart defense lawyer to say, wait a second, i challenge this because let me read you tweet from the boston police after he was taken into custody. it says captured. the hunt is over. the search is done. the terror is over. is that a problem? >> that would be used by a defense attorney to argue there was no public safety threat. in light of the circumstances we've had, the numerous improvised explosives, the huge gunfire, i think that the government is going to get a fair bit of latitude here. the other piece we have to remember is miranda only affects the statements he makes and whether or not they're admissible in court. i think the fbi will likely have a very, very strong case even if he says nothing at all based purely on the surveillance tape, statements of witnesses and the forensic evidence. >> michael, we'll have you on later to talk about the radicalization of these brothers, how and when it may have happened. thank you very much. >> thank you, matt. >> savannah, you're a lawyer. the government on firm legal ground here? >> it is. as michael pointed out this i
, requires the inspectors general of the intelligence community, departments of justice and defense, as well as the privacy and civil liberties board to submit a report to congress every year regarding the use of the information shared with the federal government. this amendment asks the inspector general of the department of homeland security to list enspectors general required to submit the report. it also adds the house and senate committee on homeland security to the list of committees that will receive the report. currently only the house and senate intelligence committee will receive the report. having the department of homeland security as a department included in this reporting requirement adds one more layer to this accountability. allow me to talk about the overall bill and why it has my support. i believe we need a 21st century solution for this 21st century problem. i have heard from businesses and constituents in arizona with firsthand knowledge of this issue. it's affecting both large corporations and small businesses alike. our national security, our financial security, are un
of defense. we built a strengthened homeland security enterprise and a more secure america, better to face the challenges we face. the president'sle budget allows us to build on the progress by preserving core front line operations priorities. at the same time, given the current fiscal environment, this is the third straight year that our budget requests reflects a deduction from the previous year. our request is $800 million below the f.y. 2013 enacted budget. our mission has nod changed and we continue to face evolving threats. we've become more strategic how we use these resources. this is coupled with a unprecedented with a fiscal discipline that has led to $4 billion in cost reductions over the past four years in a process we call efficiency review. before i get to the nuts and bolts of the budget i want to talk about sequestration. >> excuse me. can i ask you to pause a little bit longer. if you could pause for a moment dub. we want to get this quarum ieve we have a .nd if i can find -- here we go i would like to take this opportunity to conduct a brief business meeting -- to consi
at a cost of $12 billion. the official position of taiwan's ministry of national defense remains committed to procuring those submarines from the u.s. however, as the u.s. stopped making these diesel submarines many years ago, the sale has been stalled. i know we worked with france and some of our allies on this. could you advise what the current status of this submarines being acquired by taiwan is? and finally, you don't necessarily have to comment on this. if you'd like to you can, but former -- but the former president languishes today in a jail cell in taiwan. to me it smacks of the criminalization of politics. . stoot extent this administration communicates with the president i urge you to urge president mah to do the humanitarian thing, president chen's health is failing. i now yield to you, thank you. >> thank you, congressman. i appreciate it. i'll take that and just follow up on it. let me see what we can do about that. on burma, you are absolutely correct. there will be bumps in the road. i hope not big ones. obviously things are happening today that were unimaginable a few year

disarmament. the reaganites in the defense department were horrified by this and put a stop to it but reagan didn't go all the way with reaganism when he had a chance to end the cold war, especially the nuclear threats. so it's a hard-core republican belief. if you remember the pup pup prime -- republican primaries of 2012, it was not that long ago there were eight or ten republican candidates in simi valley for a debate at the reagan library and every one of them said reagan set the example how maring be strong, reagan did with the soviet union and we should do it today in iran, we should do it -- we were right toy trite in iraq. america should use its power to achieve its spend destroy its enemies. i worked in the cold war and in the middle east. you have 29% of the american people agree with that today. >> richard, do you want to say something? you're leaning forward. >> no. >> okay. we want to take questions from the audience if anybody has a question, and i think there's a microphone somewhere that someone is going to bring up. why don't we start right up here on the aisle, blue shirt.
